Black Own Voices and Anti-Racist Teen Reading List
“Crawl toward judgment. Sprint toward understanding.” -Jason Reynolds

For those of you are still looking for more anti-racist reading, here are some titles to get you started. For those of you who are looking to take it to the next level, we also have some titles down below to celebrate Black Own Voices–because no group should be defined only by their pain and struggle. These books capture the holistic Black experience through multiple genres from romance, science-fiction, fantasy, realistic fiction, and more!
